Satire Paragraph

Jeremy was only seven and he was already bossing his parents around. With most kids it started at the age of twelve, but Jeremy was always early with everything. He told his parents when to go to bed and what was for dinner. They were submissive to him; most importantly they were scared of him. This was how society worked, and everyone hated how backwards it had become.
